View Full Version : Waste gate problems

05-31-2007, 08:26 PM
hiya, im new to here.

i bought a gt4 a few weeks ago, needed a clutch and waterpump. ive got them all sorted now, were both fun jobs - day and half just for clutch. got her motd then when i could drive her properley found out it wasnt boosting right.

Ive just took the turbo off and found that the wastegate isnt shutting fully, does this mean i need a new actuator i think its called that, the vacum bit with the rod that attaches to the valves to open and shut. or can it be adjusted. sorry dont know alot about turbos never had a turbo car before.

any help would be apreciated.

cheers russ

They are not really adjustable but you can manipulate their position using washers on the bolts to move the mounting point backwards and forwards. I made a completely new mount for my actuator so it would be under proper tension.
